Justyn Ross of Clemson might have been the best wide receiver in college football for the 2020 season. The condition, which Ross was born with, is an abnormal fusion of any two of the seven bones in the neck.

"Eventually the further he went in his football career, it probably would have shown up, but nobody until this point knew that he had that", Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said Monday on a Zoom call with reporters. Dr. David Okonkwo, a leading neuroscientist, will perform the operation Friday.

Ross was originally confirmed last month to be having surgery for something related to stinger symptoms felt this spring. The next day, team doctors said X-rays revealed the issue, which Swinney said Ross has had since birth without being aware of it. "He caught a slant and got hit and was slow to get up".

"It was a hard thing for all of us. but Justyn is in a great place mentally", Swinney said.
